I have the mental image of a white Firestik antenna mounted on your shiny new Mitsubishi E"clips"e.(Once with hot tar spilled all over the interstate, and me in a brand new white luxury car)
They still do that, road construction, traffic accident and weather information too. Although with the advent of weather band radios being included in mobile CB's back in the 1990's due to marketing by RadioShack, most drivers simply flip over to the weather channels. Many motorcyclists have stories of pulling under a bridge to don their rain gear because they heard about a rain storm up ahead on the CB radio.Back in the days before GPS, other motorists used to give me road directions and alternative driving routes too. I don't drive like that anymore, but when it comes to Mobile CB radios I still continue to think that there is no better source of 'real time' road information!
